Eric Heveron-Smith is a multi-instrumentalist and producer in Asheville. In addition to being a sought-after upright bass and trombone player in the vintage swing world, he also blends folk, blues, soul and Americana with modern jazz in a variety of settings.

His trio with multi-instrumentalist Mike Holstein and drummer Justin Watt takes jazz standards and gives them expressive and free (but always melodic) treatments. Holstein and Heveron-Smith trade off on the upright bass chair, with Holstein sometimes playing guitar and Heveron-Smith sometimes playing trombone. Their playful explorations reveal a lighthearted but sensitive approach to jazz, one with deep roots and plenty of personality.
